Review, runes and strategy

Karl (Dark Neostone Fighter) is a nice attack monster in Summoners War featured in the May 2017 Hall of Heroes. He is a very good monster to use in pvp, especially in Guild Wars (he shines in offense).

Karl's main feature is his third skill which ignores all damage reduction effects, including shields (both from runes or the skill effect) and invincibility effect.

He is particulary good against defenses with monsters like Chloe (classic mid-late game defense with invincibility buff) or Khmun/Woosa/Emma/Bastet which are monsters that can be found also in higher ranks of Arena.

Also keep in mind that Karl's third skill always lands as a crit, so you can focus on critical damage substats rather than critical rate.

He can be also good in PvE context, on Violent build as a farmer. Violent build helps in lowering the cooldown of his third skill, which easily oneshot the target.
